In today’s world you can seldom turn on the TV without the words Strzok or Page spilling out the speakers. As I watched his appearance before congress the other day several scriptures came to mind.
Though he admitted to questioners he held animus toward Trump, he adamantly denied it affected his actions. God’s word says differently. Proverbs 23:7 in the King James Version says, “For as a man thinketh in this heart so is he.”
As various questioners read him texts he had sent from his cell phone the scripture from Matthew 12:34 popped in my head. “The mouth speaks what the heart is full of.” Clearly his heart is filled with hatred.
In Proverbs 26:26 the New American Standard Bible speaks of a hater. “Through his hatred covers itself with guile,” (the meaning of guile is insidious cunning in attaining a goal) “his wickedness will be revealed before the assembly.” God’s words are not merely ink on a page. According to Hebrews 4:12 “The word of God is living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword . . . and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart.”
With that in mind, before we condemn the now infamous Strzok and Page, perhaps all of us need to examine our own hearts. Each of us will one day stand before the Judge of All the Earth. Perhaps we need to examine our own hearts and our own words. Jesus said in Matthew 12:37, “For by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned.” What do our words reveal about ourselves?
